. >>> president obama and mitt romney face to face as american voters weigh their choice. the first of three presidential debates will be wednesday night. you can watch it here live at 7:00 eastern on cnn and on cnn.com. as we get closer to that debate, all week we heard about both sides trying to lower expectations of their candidates. is it going to work? two of our political experts weigh in. >>> incredible video. a man jumps from a third floor window into the arms of a crowd below. we'll tell you what forced him out of that window. we'll leave tonight. uhh, it's next month, actually... eddie continues singing: to tickets to... paradiiiiiise! no four. remember? whoooa whooaa whooo! you know ronny, folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. and how happy are they jimmy? happier than eddie money running a travel agency. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. sven's home security gets the most rewards of any small business credit card! how does this thing work? oh, i like it!

to a new fox news poll, president obama leads romney by five points among likely voters nationwide. 48% to 43%. catch that, the fox poll. highly significant there. let's go right now to howard on this question. it looks to me like this divorce papers are pretty much out there right now. all that you hear now is romney doesn't really want to be stuck in that little basement where they cut medicare. >> well, mitt romney was on the campaign trail today saying, i have a little secret, i'm going to win pennsylvania. okay. he's not going to win pennsylvania. >> it's the oldest state in the union. >> he's not going to win pennsylvania with paul ryan's profile on medicare or budget cutting or anything else. so if mitt romney is serious about making a play in pennsylvania, that just underscores how inconvenient paul ryan has become. look, mitt romney did not pick paul ryan because of paul ryan's medicare or budget programs. he picked paul ryan because of his youthfulness, because of the cultural appeal, because of what paul ryan himself calls the deer hunter catholic that he is, okay? that migh
or beating mitt romney among voters over 60. that's the very group that is the most skeptical of barack obama. they have been the hardest group for him to win over, but he is now winning them over and there's only one reason for that, it is medicare. and, you know, as much as i totally understand what howard fineman was saying, there was no other reason to pick paul ryan other than his budget. paul ryan was not the governor of a state, he can't deliver his home state from what we're seeing -- >> we know that now. >> you picked him because you wanted to tell the right we're going to take your ideology and take it to main street and then he didn't want to do it. he is trying to hide -- >> let me -- now you got into a little thought here about howard's thinking, my question to you, and it's a tough one, didn't he know that if he bought ryan, he was buying his deal? he was buying his cuts in medicare, his substitution plan for a voucher system? didn't he know that? how could he not know that? he's a dealmaker. >> he immediately distanced himself. mitt romney immediately distanced himself from the
obama and 41% mitt romney. president obama focusing on middle-class voters today when my opponent said we should just let. by a wide margin ohio voters believe that obama would do more for the middle class. when you cut through the words you could look through the records and when you can see policies that have not created the jobs american needs and you know it's time to choose a new leader, and get america growing again and get a new coach. ohio has picked a winner in the last 12 presidential elections. during that speech the u.s. delegation stated the iranian president was using his trip to spouse paranoid theories and propulsive slurs against israel. he never mentioned israel by name and his speech was not as provocative as some had expected. the american music world lost one of its legends. andy williams has died. williams died last night at his home in britain misery he was 84 years old. one of the most popular singers of his time, three platinum records and 17 gold and posted a variety of shows in the '60s. still ahead, watching what you eat labels can sometimes be deceiving,
not be moved with the illicit -- less sens barack obama got imploring ohio voters to take advantage of early boating he is not stupid but seizing the moment that is why we question they could blow the moment of the shane paul ryan is one thing when he first unleashes him here to what switches smart but it is still piling up voters in record numbers continue to pile up their ballots that looks dumb especially most will have the long before election day that for the moment barack obama looks good. that does not stick but it does not matter for them. why the romney campaign does not leave a minute to spare. air and i was startled by the numbers but they need to get the ads out and fast? >> look at i would this week the obama campaign says more than 100,000 ballots are from democrats versus 40,000 republicans. the obama campaign will hit them again and again. neil: i don't know the record but generally it is reflective of the moment look at the polls in favor the president. if you are mitt romney you don't have the moment to spare. >> you need to make a move quick. early voters are the hard part
communicators in modern history. there's a 25-point advantage for obama on who voters think will win the debates. the obama camp likes to remind that he doesn't have enough time to prepare for the debates because he is busy being chief. when it comes to how much debates matter, it depends. >> quite a few have lost an election with a debate. so it can matter. >> these match-ups can produce memorable lines. like in 1980, between ronald reagan and president carter. >> there you go again. >> and lloyd benson's swipe at quail. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you are no jack kennedy. >> and then the moments that seemed to say more, like george h. bush looking at his watch. and rick perry's oops remark. and romney's wager, and obama's comment to then-rival hilary. >> he's got two tough competing goals, to be likeable and layout a contrast. it's hard to be likeable when you are the attack dog. >> we have gotten to know barack obama, and there's not a lot of room on his canvas to paint, and romney can still show us who he is and where he would lead us. >> the president spends the first par

of the romney campaign. the obama campaign is doing it better. they are talking to more voters in ohio. that's making a difference. the hill today reporting that it's not just ohio. the obama campaign has double the number of field staff as the romney campaign and in a number of key swing state, the obama folks have twice the number of field offices. "the l.a. times" looked at the payroll numbers. they find the obama campaign is employing twice the number of staff as the the romney campaign last month at about the same cost. there are twice as many people working on the obama campaign if you exclude the $200,000 the romney campaign paid out in bonuses to its campaign officials last month, the romney's payroll number was still roughly the same as president obama's even though president obama had double the number of boots on the ground. fewer romney staff e but they get paid a lot more. there's a reason president obama is ahead in the last 20 national polls. there's a reason he's up by eight in the latest "washington post" poll in ohio. his campaign is doing more and whichever way you skint a
the mitt romney campaign for politico, which shows him trailing for the president. >> president obama has the upper hand but it is close enough that with a strong performance in denver, mitt romney could take the lead in the national polls. >> a washington post poll of the majority of voters think the president will win wednesday's debate. >> well you have a very close election nationally, president obama does have the edge in the key swing states. >> some of the reasons were spent for the disparity. >> there is a much broader lock in.'majority of voters do not want more information. that is the context they will be addressing. >> that poll shows obama with an 11 point lead and a dusting states but mitt romney advisers believe many undecided voters are still up for grabs and say they will -- mitt romney will hold his message. >> now, your 11 insta weather forecaster christopher's showers, -- your insta weather forecast. >> the showers are fairly light. you can see west of the mountains, the rain is much heavier. all that will continue to shift slowly to the north and east. the pressure is
. unlikely voters in north carolina president obama polls at 48% and mitt romney at 46%. is there any point to team obama making any adds for the rest of the campaign that do not include a 47% reference. there should be temporary tattoos with the number 47% that everybody wears on their foreheads on every campaign rally. this had proved to be beyond a turning point in the campaign. it has been devastating for mitt romney. he has been on the record talking about dismissing half the country. you know, it is, it is in some ways, i would say this. as someone that believes that there need to be a point and counter point it is a travesty for the republican party, it is evidence of a party that is at war with itself. it is you know an example of how weak the gop has gotten on fundamental issues that are at the root of conservativism and a tragedy in the long-term. you just saw laura ingram give up. they are not all giving up. i find that arguing with the polls fascinating. there is an industry that has now grown up around poll denials. i remember the winning days of the 2004 campaign. voraciously
reaction, you know, maybe voters say obama won it by a few points or romney or whatever. when you look at the debates that married in the pa mattered there's a delay there of a few days for a pundit class consensus to take hold that shapes the coverage in the days ahead that treats one cannot as being momentum that treats the other because of a bad performance. i can think of two examples of this. the first is 2000 when it was bush and al gore. when they signed off that night, nobody talked about al gore signing. the story was bush had great debat debates. in 1984 with reagan sxhoand mon, and people said reagan won. the story was reagan blanked out during the debate and he's 79 years old. >> the sign, i can imagine if it happened today, twitter would pick up on it and it would part of the media conversation almost immediately. i wonder if the response is speeded up over the years. >> i'm sure that has something to do with. >> jonathan, i got to ask. you got a little thing for joe biden? explain your piece in politico today about joe biden being sexy. >> we asked the question about whet
, those are issues he was ahead of obama until recently, and was ahead of obama with female voters until recently. the reason you're seeing that ad right now, the biggest and most troubling change in the polling in the last two weeks has been the shift in the right track/wrong track numbers and concurrently the shift of obama being given the edge over romney on those issues where the only place romney had a lead. they are, you know -- obviously don't want to talk about the issues that are toxic with female voters but must win back some of the suburban female votes on economics, deficit, stuff like that. they see that as an imperative and that's why that ad is out there. >> i don't think you say to your baby to, welcome to america. the first of the ad is so bizarre. hi, honey, welcome to our family. >> welcome to a baby -- welcome to america, baby, you're teething and have $50,000 in debt. after the break while the white house tweaks its analysis of the u.s. consulate in libya the romney ticket plans a pivot to hammer on foreign policy, something paul ryan is already focusing on. >> we're
to voters who seemed to like barack obama more. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> governor romney's 23 debate performances during the republican primary his weakness showed when he allowed competitors to get und her is skin prompting irritated off script moments that gave a new meaning to the #awkward. >> anderson -- >> you say you knew. >> would you please wait? >> are you just going to deep talking? >> yes, sir. >> let me finish what i have to say i'm running for office i can't have ill heels. >> when will you release yours? will you follow your father's examples? >> maybe. i don't know how many years i'll release. i'll take a look at what our documents are -- >> you asked me an entirely different question. >> wow. john heilemann, i can't get enough of the semi vintage romney debate clips but want to know as a resident expert on all things campaign related having written a book called "game change" how does this, the pressure that is on mitt romney to turn this thing around on a single night in an ho
: looking at the polls, which despite everything even the conflict of the catholic church, president obama leads among catholic voters by 15%. conducted september 12th obviously eight the week after the events in benghazi >> it is a sterile conversation. romney was up about nine points one month ago. remember their reelection with governor walker? he won by seven. is a stale conversation. it is not that it would. 25 points and one month? >> obama every election campaign knows they are in trouble with catholics. individual calls are going out telling blatant bias about the president's position saying he does not support abortion. is the most extreme president on that issue this country has ever seen. lou: thank you for your voices. angry liberal bill more is added again. he hates republicans republicans, president obama we have that next. the president's confusing lack of transparency on the murder of our ambassador. comparing benghazi to watergate. author of the amateur joins us. and karl rove among our guest next week. lou: united nations on a mission to become the tax master. considering
are rank and file republicans. the democrats are going great guns. obama registered 250,000 new voters in north carolina. everybody said north carolina won't really be competitive this time. i thought that along with indiana, it was probably those two states he was most likely to lose yet he's holding up in the polls. if he carries it, it's probably going to be that registration edge from the massive registration he's doing and now the republicans can't do. >> watching some of the -- one of the things i did was watch a lot of local news coverage of how this is being covered. hearing from people who live in colorado don't believe the polls. it's a lot closer than it seems. colorado is going to be really hard fought. maybe mitt romney had a hard time in the primaries in 2012. he did great in 2008. people will remember him. half of what the colorado party has spent on this election it's spent on that voter registration contract with this bogus company that's now been fired and can do no work in the last home stretch of the campaign. there's a basic competence issue in terms of what it mea
and increasingly important groups of voters. look at this. it shows overwhelming support for president obama. he leads mitt romney 70% to 26% among likely latino voters. let's bring in our chief national correspondent john king joining us from denver, the site of the debate tomorrow night. john, you've taken a close look at these numbers. are there any nuggets in there that may be good for the romney campaign? because 70% of latinos saying they're likely to vote for the president of the united states, that's pretty bad for romney. >> reporter: wolf, i've scrubbed the numbers, looked at the cross tops and in a word, no, there is nothing encouraging for the romney campaign in the poll of likely latino voters. one way you judge an incumbent president, president obama, you ask people what do you think of job performance? all americans are split on that question. do they approve or disapprove of the president's job performance, but among latinos, nearly 7 in 10, 68% say they approve of the president's job performance. look across looking in here to find some nugget of hope for governor romney as lati
is is considering an investigation into the consulting firm. and a woman registering only republican voters worked for sprool's group in colorado. check out what she said. >> would you vote for romney or obama. >> wait, i thought you were registering voters a minute ago. >> i am. >> who are you registering? all voters? >> i'm actually trying to register voters for a particular party because we're out here in support of romney, actually. >> and who is paying you for this? >> oh, the -- let me see. we're working for the county clerk's office. >> this is exactly what started the phony a.c.o.r.n. scandal. phony voter registrations. the same thing. so where is the right wing outrage today? they were horrified by those a.c.o.r.n. employees in 2008. so, guys, what do you have to say? did the right wing think we wouldn't notice their convenient double standard? nice try. but we got you. have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still stubbed up.

shows romney is trailing president obama in ohio by ten points among registered voters. among women in ohio, the dwoo ed is more stark. obama leads by 25 points. among young voters, obama leads by a staggering 35 points. romney's political director, though, says he's not worried. >> they're sorting spiking the ball at the 30 yard line right now. ohio, there's still 42 days to go. we are in it by any stretch, inside the margin of error in ohio and the obama campaign will have problems there. >> public polls are what the public polls are. i hope the obama campaign is basing their campaign off of the public polls. we don't. we base it off of our data and our message. >> cnn's national political correspondent is in westerville, ohio, jim acosta. jim, seriously, the answer from the romney camp is that the polls aren't trustworthy? >> reporter: well, i think one thing we heard from mitt romney yesterday, we had a chance to talk to him, carol, and he basically said, well, polls come up and polls go down. that was basically the message that came from his political director, you played the s
reference, but i don't believe there is voter suppression. now, the obamas we want on requests the view today. they were holing hands and i think that -- was there a movie involved and then dinner afterward? i don't know. but here is a sound bite that came out of that program. >> what would it be disasterous for the country if mitt romney were elected? >> you know, i think america is so strong and we've got so much going for us that we can survive a lot. but the american people don't want to survive. we want everybody to thrive. >> bill: that was a ringing endorsement, wasn't it? >> you know -- >> bill: no, it's funny sound bite. >> they've been trying to get -- >> wait a minute, wait a minute. let me make this political because everything obama says is political. >> give me break. >> this country survives a lot, if romney gets elected, i guess we can survive that. this guy is a master of projection. we're all praying we survive his presidency? >> bill: but romney is saying, it's going to be a disaster if he's reelected! he was low key, the president. 'cause if i were romney, i would be
-qaeda and the killing of bin laden to persuade voters he is not soft on the jihad. to be fair to president obama, opinions about his muslim outreach are inconclusive at this point. most americans don't want war with iran because that would send oil prices and possibly lead to world war 3. there is no way on this earth that israel is going to allow iran to develop a nuclear weapon. the israelis will attack the iranians. they will attack. it's just a matter of when. so americans must decide which presidential candidate can better manage the situation. things have not changed in iran since mr. obama took office, except the iranians are further down the road to development of the nuclear weapons. governor romney says he would get tougher with the iranians by supporting israel to a greater ex tents 6789 it's an incredibly difficult situations that all americans should be talking about. now the top story, who has the better take on iran? obama or romney? joining us from washington, fox news analyst kirsten powers a democrat. and lieutenant colonel ralph peters. who has the better take, colonel? >> ron
you poll of polls as we call it in ohio and florida. ohio likely voters 51% said they'd vote for obama. 44% for romney. and the poll of polls september 16th through the 24th in florida, 50% said they'd vote for the president, 45% for mitt romney. why do you think it is that mitt romney doesn't seem to be resonating in these critical states at least so far? >> well, i think he has three or four big challenges. one is that for a long period the obama campaign dramatically outspent romney in resiesly those states driving home their image of who romney is. the second is that the romney campaign is yet to find a thematic way of explaining itself and laying out in a clear crisp way the difference between romney and obama. and i think that frankly is a problem. and there's an ironic third problem. both these states have republican governors. both these governors have been doing the right things, the things mitt romney believes in. and the campaign doesn't seem to be able to pivot and say, you know, john kasich's doing the right stuff here in ohio and i want to take john kasich's model to wash
, especially those that take a poll of likely voters, they've got president obama and governor romney pretty close. but doug schoen, now he's a pollster with 35 years of experience says we're doing the voters a major disservice by focusing on those polls. he says there's something missing. we'll have the full story for you, it will be one of our new at ten stories and doug will join us to talk about it, with us the full hour at ten o'clock. president obama continues to double down on green energy. smith electric received 32 million dollars of taxpayer grants to build a battery powered vehicle factory in kansas city. here is president obama visiting that plant in 2010. >> one of those decisions was to provide critical funding to promising innovative businesses like smith electric vehicles. and because we did, there's a thriving enterprise here instead of an empty, darkened warehouse. because of the grant that went to this company, we can hear the sounds of machines humming and people doing their work instead of just the ghostly silence of an emptied out building and the memory of workers who
, obama's 2009 auto bailout plays well with voters. >> when my opponent said we should just let detroit go bankrupt. [ audience boos ] >> i said no, i'm going to bet on america. i'm betting on american workers. i'm betting on american industry. [ cheers ] >> and today, the american auto industry has come roaring back with nearly 250,000 new jobs. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: but perhaps the biggest plus for the president is that more ohioans are working than they were four years ago. melissa miller teaches political science at bowling green state university where the president rallied supporters. >> unemployment was 8.6% when obama took office. 's down to7.2 so this is one of theces where obama ca really say you are better off than you were before. having said that, the jobs numbers have stalled a bit. >> reporter: the president is vulnerable to recent attacks by romney that he hasn't been tough enough on china's trade practices, a claim that resonates with voters in this manufacturing state. wednesday obama unveiled a new counter attack. >> he's been talking tough on chinese. says
? >> right now obama in the polls is at 53%. it means it is not good enough for romney to pick up the undecided voters. which might mean like a crisis and you rup. the bullish sign has been in the stock market which has been getting jittery like spain and europe. romney is running out of time like routine things like the debate. bill clinton told me that the debates are going to be crucial for romney. the first debate if he can turn around the 47% fiasco. it could be a disaster. the impression he gave that comes with being a wealthy detached guy not caring about people who need help. what would you recommend he do? >> i think the 47% comment revealed, he wasn't doing what you should do play to the center. he has written off peak who have the median income and below. the text book strategy is can you find a way. he is not taughting out ideology saying i can be a reasonable manager. that was his message at first sand he is trying to find different approaches which is what you do when you are losing and he should have stuck to the message he had all along instead of trying to pick pa
, that is basically kind of a bullet point presentation. what voters are asking is, what did barack obama do while he was president to create such a weak economy? and they're sitting there waiting for mitt romney to give them that explanation. hopefully he will do it in the big debate next wednesday night. jenna: we'll see if he gets into specifics. always nice to read articles and thanks for joining us on the program. >> nice to be with you. jenna: gregg? gregg: police trying to determine what caused a man to open fire inside a business killing four people this morning. the latest on the deadly workplace shooting. >>> investigators blaming a bird strike for a fatal plane crash. details on the pilot's last-ditch efforts to save his passengers. jenna: right now 19 people are dead because of a plane crash in nepal. investigators say the aircraft hit a vulture just after takeoff today. you're seeing the scene right in front of your face there. this happened, again in kathmandu. the pilot reported trouble and was trying to return to the airport and the plane went down. the crash site was less than 600 fe
to close a lot of the loopholes and deductions for wealthy americans. president obama took a a new tat today, wrapping himself in the flag asking voters for give him more time to fix the economy. >> if we rally around a new economic patriotism together we can rebuild this economy together. we will grow the middle class together. we will move forward together. i don't believe we are as divide as our politicians make us think. i think we have more in common than the pundits give us credit. >>reporter: governor romney is making the point the country cannot afford another four years of an obama administration and his economic policies, pointing to today's revised g.d.p. numbers showing the second quarter growth for 2012 was 1.3 percent only. >>shepard: we are a week away from the first presidential debate. we will be there for coverage throughout the day. during prime time, bret baier and megyn kelly continue right here on fox news, america's source for news and information on cable. >> looks like the bosses at the nfl decided the referees are worth more money. you may have helped, actuall
voters aren't enthusiastic enough about president obama to go to the polls. he thinks voters are much more revved up about mitt romney. what do you think? >> certainly in virginia where there's a significant african-american population, it remains very much engaged. and one of the things that the obama campaign has been doing this year as it did in '08 is trying to be as visible as possible in areas where there are large numbers of african-americans though there is still a strong republican tendency. and the point of that exercise is to run as closely to romney in areas of the state where he should do exceptionally well as possible. >> jeff shapiro, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >>> there is a reason why virginia is a battle ground state. it's close race. but the president is inching forward. this is the average of recent polls. as of last week, more likely voters in virginia would choose president obama 50% to 44%. a new softer mitt romney is emerging on the campaign trail because of these numbers in part. maybe compassionate conservatism is back. al
. a new "washington post" abc poll shows president obama with a huge edge among registered voters when asked whom they expect to win the debate. joining me from las vegas is jen saki, traveling press secretary for the obama campaign. >> great to be here. >> hi. good to talk to you from debate camp. >> yes. >> how is the mood out there? is this a walk in the park since "the washington post," the people polled by "the washington post" seems to think the president has this thing knocked. >> well, you know, we don't pay attention to all those polls. look, i think the romney campaign has been clear for months they're going to use this, pull out every zinger in the book to use this as a game changing performance. that's what they think they need, that's what they expect mitt romney to deliver on on wednesday evening. as the president's preparing over the next couple days in lovely las vegas he's looking at it differently. he thinks this is an opportunity to speak directly to the american people as he did at convention about his vision for moving the country forward. that's who our audience i
and says something interesting about america. it's interesting to me that american voters find barack obama, son of a kenyan, raced a all over the place, indonesia, hawaii, more relatable than a mormon businessman. since when did being a white strish, businessman, conservativeman be an unbelievable man to the american people. >> >> i was talking about journalists. >> that seems to be be something reflected in the polls. people find romney a hard guy to be to have. >> journalists would be frightened. being a businessman is not a particular type of thing. he's not running a mom and pop store who built a business that sold things. he moved money around for a living and i think being in finance and not being in the making and selling business, that's a big difference. that's hard to understand for normal everyday americans and that's the kind of bias we see because that's what played a part in the crumb bling of our economy. >> this is a serious charge. you're suggesting because t average boy or girl on the bus doesn't relate to rom i in, most of them are not mormon or come from the world of fi
. >> they created a bigger problem because of the way that he handled it. i mean, i think the danger for the obama administration is not so much voters are suddenly going to think, oh, he's weak on national security. he has a big, big cushion in the polls now in terms of how voters view his national security policy but i think there are two dangers for him, one the honesty issue which the obama campaign has been hitting hard and trying to come at him in different directions on that, the idea that maybe, you know, they were deliberately dishonest or went with something they had reason to believe might not be true. and, i think the other real problem for obama is the appearance of apathy, politically, which romney did when he issued the statement about benghazi, but voters will think, maybe the president is acting more in the interest of his campaign when it comes to national security issues, than really what is in the best interest of the country and those are the two potential weak spots, coming out of this. >> chris: as we reported and came out, in the cores of our interview with paul ryan, mitt
